Rep. Michelle Ugenti-Rita says it isn’t the purpose behind her legislation.

But the Scottsdale Republican is proposing to eliminate one of the things police can use as an excuse to stop and question motorists: those metallic tags affixed to license plates that show whether a vehicle’s registration is expired.

What is behind it, she said, is money.

“If we get rid of it, we could realize a savings of $1.8 million,” Ugenti-Rita said. That includes not just printing up the tiny labels but, in many cases, the cost of mailing them out.
